§ MR. HAYDEN (Leitrim, S.)
asked the Postmaster General, Whether he has received a Memorial from the people of Carrigallen, asking to have a telegraph office provided for that town; and, whether, considering that the connection with the nearest wire would only entail a comparatively trifling expense, he will see his way to grant the request of the Memorialists, who represent all classes of the community?
§ THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)
Yes, Sir; I have received the Memorial to which the hon. Member refers; but I fear it may not be possible to establish a telegraph office at Carrigallen, except under guarantee. I have called for fresh Reports on the subject; and I shall be pleased to communicate the result to him as soon as I receive them.
